Late, As Usual...


Well damn, I missed Valentine's Day! You'd think with a year to prepare a post, it wouldn't catch me by surprise like that. We had a Valentine's Day blizzard here yesterday, which is a lot better than a Valentine's Day Massacre, but was still a pain in the ass.

And allow me to bitch for a minute- since when did the godamned card companies decide that all the damned cards are suddenly musical?? An entire aisle of cards in the store, and about 6 of them didn't burst into fucking song the moment I peeked inside. If I wanted to hear some lame-ass sappy song butchered by oversinging I'll tune in to American Idol, or put on a Celine Dion cd.

Sidenote- did you know that Wikipedia has an entire entry on the soundtrack to the movie 'Titanic'? I don't know whether to be proud to live in the 21st century, or scared out of my socks.

That's the most demonic cupid I've ever seen, and there are shades of Super Bowl Prince in that bow. Damn, you find good stuff!

Phoebe- thank you; next year he'll sing a little song...

Damn, for some reason my link did not work. Let's try again.

As I was saying... I should admit that before I got my twisted hands on the poor fella, he started life here, as this.

Oh! It's his bow!

Colonel Colonel said...

Catalyst- I must admit, that had escaped me. If you don't see the bow, you either see a big red tutu, or, well, um... Mrs. Cupid is one well-satisfied camper.

I think the main purpose of the musical cards are to embarrass customers who want to discreetly check out a few cards and nip out with their purchase.

I'm all in favour of the cards having bawdy rollicking songs.

Reverend- you might well be right, though this store also has one of those gates at the door that has a siren and blinking lights that go off if someone goes through with an object that has not had its chip deactivated at the counter. What someone needs to invent is a chip that screams "Help! Help! I'm being stolen!!" when someone goes through it.
